You can have compensation for the accident’s impact on your salary and wages—not just income you’ve already lost but also the money you would have been able to make in the future were it not for the accident. In personal injury legalese, compensation for an accident victim’s “loss of earning capacity” characterized a damage award based on future income.

Property loss

Suppose an accident damaged any vehicles, clothing, or other items. In that case, you’d likely reimburse the repairs or compensation for the fair market value of the property lost.

Pain and suffering

You may be entitled to get compensation for pain and severe discomfort you suffered during the accident and in its immediate aftermath — also for any ongoing pain that can contribute to the accident.
